Overall Satisfaction with Blackboard Learn

We use Blackboard Learn to create and manage online classrooms and course content. It's been really helpful to stay connected to students, use Google to create assignments, and coordinate with other teachers and easily communicate with students.
  • Course content management.
  • Communication with students.
  • Scheduling assignments and class discussions.
  • More third party features, beyond Google Suite.
  • Connecting to our SIS can be tricky at times.
  • The mobile app could use some smoothing out.
  • This has been a great tool to dive into for setting up course work quickly and simply.
  • Other than slow server speeds, we haven't had a negative impact on our work.
Blackboard has been good for putting together course work and class discussion, which Google Classroom does not feature and Moodle is too laggy to work well.
Support is helpful. It does exactly what I need it to in my capacity and role. However, I do know that other instructors could certainly use a few more features than I use.
